Halifax, Nova Scotia Unusual Object

Date: August 5, 2004
Time: Approx: 8:30 p.m.


Thanks for the reply. Sounds good. I think this one is probably explainable because of the military bases near by but well see what you can find out.

The details are simple.

Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia (see attached map)

Date: Aug 5th, 2004 around 8:30 PM Camera: Digital Canon Powershot A70 set to size 1600x1200 set on full auto. Operator: me

We were driving in to town, heading south along Highway 118 (in Dartmouth still) just were it turns into Woodlands drive when I noticed them from the back left passenger seat. I rolled down the window and took a few pictures as best I could when the car was slow or stopped. That would put them approximately out over the Halifax Harbour between Dartmouth and Halifax. The seemed to be stationary or if they were moving they must have been very slow (or at high altitude). The reason I though they were bizarre is that if they were at altitude, I expect to see at least a short vapour trail. If they were low, I would have been able to see detail and they would have appeared to be moving faster with respect to my position. If they were moving, I would say it was in a northerly direction, with one object slightly to the east and behind (south) the other one.

Anyway, they really don't look much different in the photo than in reality even though the photos aren't great. I was hoping to get some detail later when I loaded the photos onto the computer and zoomed in but the quality isn't good enough. They just look like spots. some of the photos have the tops of buildings in them that give an idea of how fast we were going. One catches a power line which shows that I was nearly stationary but there are still few details. One is really out of focus but I snapped a bunch to see what I could get. The sky seems pretty light in the photos for 8:30 now that I look at them but I think I'm right because we were supposed to be in by 8:00 and we were ~1/2 an hour late.

Let me know if you find anything out. Have fun.


Thank you to the witness for the report and photos.
